Will be 80 in June. Been playing since 1962 (59 years). Handicap is currently 18 but am working to get it back to 15-16. My 3-wood is an oldie but goodie, KZG 15 degree Maraging Power with a Grafalloy

What? Do you even know where you are? Do you not know what goes on around here? Don't let mgmt hear you talking like that. 

Currently 10.9 and not a 3 wood fan. For some reason I really struggle with them. I think a lot of it is down to confidence and that's why it's normally this relic that gets in the bag!

What did you game before the sim2 ti? What differences have you seen between the two? Did the old one do anything better than the sim2 ti?

Came from an OG SIM TI as someone else said that head seemed to just produce low spin bombs that were creeping into driver numbers.  OG was definitely a good off the tee option, never felt super comfortable with it off the deck.  SIM2 spins a little bit more and seems more consistent distance wise albeit a tad shorter.  Hopefully that helps!

ST200 TS D+ Whiteboard. Around 8 right now. 

 

I've tried a lot of different 3-4 woods, and everything that's out currently. It is a fantastic club.

Thanks. Testing Sim2 ti to see if it will unseat my 17m2. It's basically a draw in launch monitor and range. Gotta get them in the course. I didn't care for sim ti. The only reason I'm trying it is to he able to set the face slightly open. But 17m2 is just really good. Sim2 ti has to be as forgiving as it.

Titleist 917f2 15* w/ aldila rogue x stiff

 

Recently (2 months ago) returned from a 12ish year hiatus from golf and copped this from eBay for $50.

 

This thing is an absolute cannon.  I've been seeing low 190 ball speed from my tsi4 the last couple weeks, and the 917 is upper 170s all day long.  My only gripe is spin off the tee.  From the fairway, it's incredible but I really don't need it for that role - here in the Austin area I haven't run into any par 5s that are over 600 and necessitate a 3 wood approach.  For now it's been used after a junk ball off the tee on a longer par 5 or to place the ball off the tee.

 

For $50 I'm ecstatic with it.  Oh and it sounds incredible (better than the TSI4).

6.4 on GHIN. Currently have a PXG Gen 2 3W with Aldila NV set at 15°, weights in low spin.  Just picked up and testing a TSi2 3W with PX Smoke Black RDX at 15°, surefit standard. So far the TSi2 is better in dispersion, but not as long.  I primarily use my 3W from the tee box as a lot of the holes at my course require precise placement. 

 

These next few weeks, I'll continue to hit both from the tee box, but now I'll use them off the deck as well.  Both clubs are solid.
